    So when I made the conversion my station had E85 in Jan. Thought I would test and see where I'm at this winter and I got E75. I know I'm actually richer but the octane may be a little lower. Should I get a tune adjustment? Car still runs awesome. @04sleeper

    E75 won't really hurt anything except the fuel trims may be a little off due to the Stoich being a hair higher. I can always send you an updated tune file for E75 to help fuel trims stay in line. Octane really doesn't start dropping off until around the E50 mark so you have PLENTY of Octane.

    Shoot me a quick email and I'll send you an adjusted tune for E75.

    Man. I wish I'd of known I was good on E75, on my E85 tune.

    I was so scared, I put my car away a tad earlier than usual this year.

    Thanks again Kevin!

    Guessing I got all the 85 out and was down to just the winter E75. Noticed the car was starting a little harder--slightly extended crank. Opened the glove box and sure enough; WB showing @12:1 at idle.

    Threw the E75 tune in. Fired up like stock and 14.64 at idle.
